Cashless in China

China.  They are so advanced when it comes to cashless payments!  You got to visit China to see it for yourself, just how widespread WeChat pay and Alipay are used.  These days, the Chinese don't need cash, don't need debit or credit cards.  It is all about paying using their WeChat wallets or Alipay wallets.  Fantastic.

In China, they all use smartphones.  Even the elderly.  See this video taken on the Guangzhou Metro.

At the Guangzhou Bus station, you can buy tickets using the QR Code. They put up all the QR codes on the wall.  No more ticket booths. No more ticket lines.  Your phone becomes your ticket booth.  Your phone gets the e-ticket (no more paper).  Amazing stuff.

Even the vending machines accepted mobile payments.  In this video, we pay for our vending machine drinks using the WeChat wallet. It was so easy and convenient!  No need for spare change!

Amazing stuff.  We in Singapore are so behind.
